Over 30 ever-changing booths on the Marktplatz are waiting for you during the Esslingen Medieval Market and Christmas Market. This celebration features artisans like pewterers, felt-makers, blacksmiths, tinder-makers, rope-makers, glass-blowers, and broom-makers, who showcase their craftsmanship. Don’t miss a chance to impress your beloved ones with unique gifts they will fall in love with. Christmas is all about warm emotions, and the Esslingen market is a place where you can enjoy these emotions to the fullest.
Lasting for four weeks, the market also features various stage artists, who fascinate their audience with juggling, music, and entertainment. As a visitor, you will discover fairytales in felt, elk in pajamas, jugglers, Christmas elves, and knitted chains. You can also check out various workshops, where you will learn the old market language, participate in a stick-fighting course, find out how to smoke food, or even produce your own tinder. Welcome the winter with drums and songs, and have the time of your life.
